I love having sandals I can get on the treadmill with and not walk out of! Specifically they’re Aravon 3 Strap Sandals I got a few years ago.
Today I felt like going for a walk. Not wanting to burn in the sunshine I decided I’d try the treadmill despite my sandals. I only did .6 miles (going uphill for much of it), enough to get the ball of my right foot feeling a little bit hot, but I checked and it’s not a blister. My previous walking in these hasn’t been as steady as the treadmill tends to induce, so I was concerned I’d have to quit long before I did. I am pleased. I’m not going to wear them daily, but on a warm day like today it’s nice to have comfortable sandals. :)
Oh: and not only was I in sandals and a knee-length skirt on the treadmill, but I ended up explaining why I was singing about a pretty little dead girl in a coupe de ville while walking on the treadmill in my sandals and skirt. (I was listening to the studio version and couldn’t resist the urge to sing along. The song has also spawned a short story series in The Edge of Propinquity.)
